At Oxford University Press we want to help you find the right reading resources for your classroom. We understand that to be a successful reader, Australian primary school students need to be taught both phonics and comprehension skills. Use our product selector tool to find an Oxford reading series that best matches your needs.
Research shows that a consistent, strategic approach is the key to successfully developing comprehension skills. To support Australian primary school teachers in addressing the comprehension challenge, we offer a range of comprehension programs that integrate easily into lesson planning.
We understand that for every child in your school to read successfully they need to have a strong phonic knowledge – recognising each of the graphemes, decoding and blending effortlessly and reading with fluency and expression. Our range of phonics resources will help your students embed these phonic skills and develop a love of reading.
Oxford has a range of online resources to support teaching and learning. Many of our series come with free supplementary digital resources and we have standalone digital products to enhance your teaching through technology.
We know that all students learn at a different pace. Our tools are designed to help you monitor student reading growth and plan activities appropriate to the needs of each student.
